new here with questions

I am new here and was wondering, does anyone here experience your heart just racing on it's own for no reason? Mine did this the other day and before it started to race i got tingling in the right side of my face and then my heart took off! It felt like there was nothing in my chest (that's the best I can discribe it). I didn't sweat or anything. I also from time to time feel short of breath for no reason. i have gone to a cardio doc and have worn a heart monitor. Doc said it could be low blood pressure but i thought maybe peri. I am 47 and still get my period.

Welcome misstlynn, Sorry to say but yes heart palpitations are very common. Many women have gone to the ER because it feels like your heart is racing right out of your chest. I hope it gets better for you.

Re: new here with questions

I am in my 2nd year of the Peri nightmare.....I did go to the ER because my heart was racing, hyperventilating, etc, no problem.

I went to the cardiologist, they found no problems.

For the past month, my chest feels tight and I feel pressure. Of course, I always think heart attack, but when I breathe through it, it usually subsides. It is very scary.
My heart also races and palpitates. I am going to see my doctor tomorrow for a check up and get more lab work done, to make sure no other problems are going on. I keep telling myself, "I am not crazy, I am not crazy...."
